Charlotte, North Carolina, has developed a national reputation as a banker's town, a place where business deals are made. But as this anthology makes clear, another side to the city's life -- a rich literary heritage -- grows stronger with the years. Charlotte is the place where Carson McCullers wrote The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter, where W. J. Cash wrote The Mind of the South, and where Erskine Caldwell got his start as a book reviewer. All are featured in these pages, along with Harry Golden, LeGette Blythe, Charles Kuralt, and Kays Gary.Although such legends set the standard, this book also offers samples of the vibrant writing life that exists in Charlotte today. Included are four dozen writers whose work gives the city its heart, soul and direction. This sampler features such contemporaries as Dori Sanders, Patricia Cornwell, Nancy Kincaid, Ashley Warwick, Scott Ely, and others.… (more)

Color the Rainbow is an online book presented in Flash movie format. Freda the Frog says very short rhymes about six objects (a red hat, a pumpkin, a dick, lima beans, a blue beach ball, and a purple lollipop) that appear in succession in the movie. Each of these colors is a color in the rainbow. At the end of each rhyme, Freda says, ”I can guess its color . . . “ the child must click on a flashing arrow indicating it’s time to “turn the page.” Then Freda says. “It is (the color of the object).” She hops over to the rainbow in the background and adds the color to it. The background, aside form the rainbow, doesn’t change. It is a colorful scene showing a lake surrounded by palm trees and a waterfall with lily pads in the middle.

This story shows the child an example of an object that is one of the featured colors and the child, either through watching the story repeatedly or from knowing the colors already, can say what color it is when cued. The rhyming and action are an engaging way for the child to practice some of his colors.

Comparison to Now Then Later

Color the Rainbow teaches the concept of colors using actual movement and sounds and bright colors. Because it is in a flash movie format, it can grab the child’s attention, and the child will enjoy watching it over and over, giving him or her more opportunities to learn the concept. It doesn’t demonstrate very many colors or repeat each color concept very many times. In contrast, Now Soon Later repeats the time concept many, many times and shows it in more varied situations then Color the Rainbow does. ( )
